Eventual Reality

CD (Item 914503) BBE (UK), 2017 — Condition: Used
$6.99 ...

CD

A fantastic debut from the James L'Estraunge Orchestra – a studio combo, but one who come together with this amazing mix of groove and sophisticated arrangements! The project is the brainchild of Ricky Reid – who you might know in his work with The Soul Renegades – and there's a richness to the album that takes us back to some of the first wave of really complicated, really beautiful sounds from the London scene years back – maybe like the music of Chris Bowden or Jessica Lauren, with just a trace of 4Hero in the way that Reid blends together fuller strings and horns with some tight rhythms at the core. There's plenty of great keyboards on the album – including some Fender Rhodes from Ricky – but the album's hardly just the usual beats-and-keys session, as there's a complex vision here that's way more than just dancefloor music. Yet there's also plenty of grooves – just served up with a depth that makes the album appealing in so many other ways too – on tracks that include "The Call", "Closer", "We Rise", "Me & The Bear", "Eventual Reality", "See You Tonight", "Autumn Falls", and "It Happened Before".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible. All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.
